Placemaking & the Arts

Tri-County recognizes the economic and social value of creating public spaces that are inviting, active, and reflective of those who live in the region. Placemaking promotes better urban design while incorporating cultural and social identities of our region, which improves the quality of life, happiness, and well-being of residents. 

 

By collaborating and strategically planning for public spaces, we strengthen the connection between our region's people and the places we share. Additionally, supporting the creative community and incorporating the arts into placemaking efforts creates a sense-of-place that encapsulates the identity of a region.
